"Moravian Soundscapes is an important contribution to our understanding of the musical dimension of European religious subcultures in colonial-era North America.... Eyerly positions Moravian song and sound at the center of this history and shows how its creators used it to impose order on their social and natural worlds."
Olivia Bloechl, author of Native American Song at the Frontiers of Early Modern Music
"Moravian Soundscapes brings a compelling and necessary new approach to the study of music, sound, space, and colonial encounter in early America. Combining historical research, sound mapping, and autobiographical reflection, Eyerly reveals the way in which listening and singing were integral to European and Native Moravians' understanding of their environments, experiences of faith, and construction of community. In doing so, she offers an intimate exploration of how family, place, and music intertwine."
